Lucy's story

Lucy is a 44-year-old married woman with children, living in Fort Portal, Uganda. She owns a retail shop, which she started ten years ago by getting capital from her salary, and deals in decorations. The hardships she faces are: customers not paying on time and inadequate capital to purchase stock.

Her dream is to educate her children, build a permanent home and move her business to a more permanent location. Lucy needs this loan to buy merchandise, like soap and sugar, to sell.
